More tools and features. No added cost.

AMI Full Deployment Request

In November 2020, LG&E and KU sought authority from the Kentucky Public Service Commission to deploy Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) across our service territories. Our request will follow the standard regulatory review process.

If the applications are approved, AMI will allow LG&E and KU to build the foundation to expand on the exceptional service we provide to our customers at no additional cost to you. We’re excited about the prospects of bringing you more tools, services and rate options.

With AMI, our customers would gain access to detailed and personalized energy usage data, tools to actively manage their energy usage, and tailored recommendations that can save them money.

What is AMI?

Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) gives customers access to detailed and personalized energy usage data, tools to actively manage their energy usage, and tailored recommendations that can save them money.  AMI incorporates two-way communicating smart meters and the associated communications devices to support automated meter reading, remote connects/disconnects, and information to help LG&E and KU reduce outages and respond quicker when there is an outage. This means that meter readers no longer need to access customer’s property to read their meter, outages are reported automatically, and reconnections can occur quicker.

Additionally, AMI provides customers with improved energy efficiency program options, additional billing and payment plans, and more.
